Rep. Steve Cohen claims one Republican is considering articles of impeachment against Trump

Just days after House Democrat Al Green introduced articles of impeachment on the House floor against President Donald Trump, another Democratic lawmaker now claims a Republican is also looking into it.

Congressman Steve Cohen appeared on "MSNBC Live with Alex Witt" where he said at least one Republican is considering supporting articles of impeachment against President Trump.

"I have one Republican that has said he is looking at it, he’s considering it," Cohen said. "I have other Republicans, just like Sen. Bob Corker suggested, who have told me on a constant basis that they know this man is not balanced, he is not capable of continuing to lead us."

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and many of those in the caucus have not supported attempts by some House Democrats to impeach Trump.
